Estepona Marina

The Estepona Marina is situated at the west end of the seafront promenade. This is a very pleasant place for a stroll and there are some magnificent boats moored here. There are also a wide variety of excellent bars and restaurants, open both midday and in the evening while younger revelers can enjoy the late night disco bars. There is a popular tourist market here on a Sunday morning.

BARS, restaurants, and Nightlife

After midnight (especially in the summer season) the port comes alive. Numerous night clubs and discos seem to materialise from nowhere. Most of them cater for the young and energetic. Visitors will be amazed to see the very young and the very old dancing the traditional Andalucían Sevillana well into the early (and not so early) hours of the morning. Renaldo's on the corner is a favourite meeting place, "Louie Louie " is the home to live bands and there are some very good tapas bars including "La Pintoresca " and "La Taberna".If you are looking for an authentic no frills restuarnt "La Escollera" is the place, no reservations taken, if there is a queue that guy behind the bar will add you to the list and call out your name, when the next free table becomes available.


See the Nightlife, Restaurant and Cafes and Bars section which includes the establishments in the Marina.



Fishing Port

The fishing port is located to the west of the marina. Here you can watch the fishing boats land their catch. This can take place throughout the day, but is generally during the early morning, mid afternoon, and late at night. It is not possible to buy fish but you can watch the auction process (as long as you don't get in the way) which is followed by the covering of the fish pallets with ice and loading them into the insulated vans for distribution to local suppliers.


The large and small fishing boats are located in the fishing port adjacent (east) to the marina. Watch the catch landed, iced, sold and transported away. Notice the fisherman's lock - ups where they store materials, mend nets and have parties. Try the excellent fish restaurant "La Escollera" here.
